Wii U: Amazon distributor claims Nov 11 release, $249 price tag

Wii U still hasn't received an official release date or price from Nintendo, but a new industry source has stepped forward and hurled its hat in the ring. Pinches of salt at the ready, here we go.

Video Product Distributors - the same company that supplies stock to Amazon and Blockbuster - has posted up SKU, price and release date information for Wii U in North America.

NintendoLife made the discovery, and reports that VPD has posted the following details on Wii U's North American launch:

  • WIIU SYSTEM - GM - 11/11/12 $249.99
  • WIIU SYSTEM W/ - GM - 11/11/12 $299.99
  • WIIU SYSTEM 349 W/ - GM - 11/11/12 $349.99

Note that there are three bundles listed.

Because you have to log-in to view VPD's product slate, YouTube user H0undd0gg has captured a video of the site, along with its Wii U listings. Here it is:

Thanks NintendoLife.
